All sorts of new and exciting things have been cooking up around here lately. Although, speaking of cooking, I should note that I had a particularly epic Pinterest fail a couple of nights ago when I attempted 2 ingredient pancakes. Yeah, #nailedit. Luckily, I’d like to think that my design skills far surpass my cooking skills (or epic lack thereof) and I’ve been working on some great projects the past couple of weeks!
Here’s a look at the moodboard for a fun branding & blog design project that’s in the works:
I’ve also been designing a blog using the Genesis template and decided to make myself a handy dandy PSD template with some equally handy dandy guidelines to make setting up designs with the basic theme easier. And because I’m just.that.cool. (ha!), I’m sharing it with you as a free download. The PSD is pretty barebones- I just took 3 screenshots from the demo page of the header/sidebar, a post, and the footer and created guides marking off the major elements (headers, margins, content areas, etc.). Obviously, you can change the look, arrangement, and sizes of everything via CSS but hopefully this will make the basic workflow faster and easier! If there’s anything major or super helpful that I’ve left out, please let me know. Just click on the image below for the PSD download.
